president george w. bush got a memo entitled bin laden determined to strike in the u.s. a month later nearly 3,000 people died in the worst terrorist attack in u.s. history. americans want their frf to be vigila vigilant. they don't want right wingers trying to score cheap political points while he's trying to keep us safe. joining me now is former democratic congressman patrick murphy. the first iraq war vet to serve in congress. and karen finney, host of "disrupt" here on msnbc. thank you both for joining me. >> thanks, rev. >> thanks, rev. >> congressman, one republican lawmaker said closing the embassies was done like a bunch of cowards. what's your reaction to that? >> well, you know, i just think it's disgraceful, to be honest with you. these are guys that are the biggest chicken hawks in the world. all they want to do is criticize, criticize, criticize. it's a knee jerk reaction. whatever president obama says, they do the opposite. now, they should stop this crap when we're talking about the national security, the safety of our diplomats. being a diplomat overseas is not an easy job.

+. >>> tonight, former president george bush is said to be recuperated well after having a stint placed in a blocked artery today. for thor president clinton, who had the same procedure in 2010, reached out to mr. bush today. doctors found the blockage yesterday. former president bush has been known as a fitness buff. he worked out regularly during his two terms in office. dr. sanjay gupta joins me now. so what do we know about this? >> he's 67 years old. we're told this happened on a routine physical exam, so they gave no indication that there was any problems ahead of time. that's an important point, but something during the exam alerted them and it was cause for concern and that led to the placement of that stint. essentially you're trying to unblock an artery. and they put a catheter up into the artery and unblock it sometimes with a balloon. but ultimately you can put this stint in place, you're particular with this, you've seen this. it's sort of more permanent fix and sometimes these stints will release medication, as well. >> i have seen studies that these are kind of -- people

presidential campaign be like? brad bliekl blakely smiling on e right. you worked for president george w. bush. brad, how much does he have to win by in november to potentially send a national message? what do you think? >> if you look at the polls as you suggested, eric, he will win handily because he's delivered. don't forget. new jersey is a blue state. he's a republican governor in a democratic state. he has to face a democratically-controlled senate. look at what he's been able to do showing bi-partisanship, balanced budget, creating jobs, taking on the teachers union. his leadership before, during, and after superstorm sandy, so his leadership is his greatest strength. that's why you see his poll numbers so good even beyond his state, so i think he'll win handily unless something unforeseen happens in november. that sets him up to be certainly the frontrunner as we start talking even now about 20 60s d the presentation rate. >> eric: he's got a feud going on with rand paul and some in the republican party he's alienated. >> the republican party isn't homogeneous. we have a lot of differ

is just a continuation of president george w. bush in the foreign policy realm where the president, this president is just continuing the hawkish policies of the bush administration. and then the next minute, they're claiming that the president is weak in foreign policy showing weakness to our enemies and yet, completely forgetting about all the drone strikes that the president is doing, and the other thing about what jim demint is doing which i find rather callous is would he rather the president of the united states not close the embassies and make our -- and make american personnel targets for a terrorist attack? i wonder what they would be saying if the president followed through on the advice that they're giving him. >> you mean another benghazi. >> yeah, exactly. >> benghazi, benghazi. right on cue, rick santorum not a foreign policy expert accused the president of being timid. i love the personifications, timid. muscular foreign policy. they turn on to some school yard kind of event. let's watch. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. i

passed fewer executive orders at this point in his presidenciy than did george w. bush or bill clinton. people are always annoyed when presidents act with executive orders. aren't they? but presidents do it. it is their prerogative. and that's what his predecessors did even more than he did. >> it's not the number. >> you did when you were president. >> did i executive orders when i was governor. i never bypassed the law. i didn't do things that i knew i could not do under the constitution of my state. what i think is different is not how many it's what they do. executive order that says we are going to order federal employees to, you know, to work through their lunch hour for six months. okay, that's not a constitutional issue. a federal executive order where the president says we're going to let people come into the country even though though don't have documentation and even though the law doesn't permit it, that's a violation. >> alisyn: the dream act doesn't say that what he did with the dream act kids brought here through no fault of their own. >> i agree with the dream act's goa
